Friday’s underway

This morning I’m wondering at what age Friday will stop feeling like I’ve just sighted the finish line in a marathon. I live for Fridays, man. All for the anticipation of sleeping in on Saturday. I should put “Will Work For A Chance To Sleep In” on my business cards.

Of course… the Amazon Friday Sale helps, too.

Personally, my preferred child tracking method is to put the fear of God into them (kidding! mostly!), but if you’re into those electronic child trackers, under $40 seems like a great price.

The Oxo Candela Tooli lights are back. Love these. (So does my daughter. She says “Buy them for me! Buy them for me!” I told her to get a job.)

The Hoover SteamVac SpinScrub Pet was initially named the Hoover SteamVac SpinScrub PiddleBeGone, but that didn’t test well with the masses.

Need king-size pillows? The fact that they’re termed “gel-filled” disturbs me just a little, but $15/pillow for reviews that good seems promising.

This Cuisinart Grill & Griddle is still not exactly cheap (about $94 shipped), but I do love the idea it. We use our electric griddle all the time (pancakes!), and sometimes I wish we had an electric grill for when the weather isn’t amenable to grilling out… but I can’t justify two pieces that big. With this, you have both, all in one piece. Very cool.

Need silverware? Maybe it’s because I grew up in central New York, but deep in my heart I believe you’re not a grown-up until you own a set of Oneida silverware. Mostly I feel that way because I’ve never known an Oneida spoon to bend even in rock-hard ice cream (truly the test of good flatware).

I’ve never used these laundry dropps, but they get fantastic user reviews, and if you use Subscribe & Save you’re looking at enough detergent for 60 loads delivered to your door for $16.99. This is an eco-friendly product, so yeah, it’s going to cost more than Tide or Wisk, but Amazon’s price beats the price at the dropps Store.

Nothing says “I love you” like… massaging pig slippers?? Um….

Don’t forget to check today’s Gold Box Deal, too—it’s a TomTom ONE GPS for under a hundred bucks. And—of course—there’s always the Amazon Friday Five, five great MP3 albums for just $5 each.

I hope you have a great Friday, everyone!


  1. Ikea has something very similar to those Oxo Candela thingies. They’re little ghost shapes that glow and have a wall-wart charger for the rechargable battery. $14 and the light lasts about 4 hours. I’d prefer an all night glow but this works.

  2. Def buy Animal Collective’s latest. At $5 it is a total steal. AMAZZZZZING

  3. Hey Pretty Mir,
    I use dropps all the time and I love them. So easy to use and great for the environment.

  4. I have the standard size of the gel pillows, and it’s a bit misleading and not what you’d expect. The gel actually feels like feathers or down, and the pillow is very much like a down pillow, but without the pointy things sticking in your face. It scrunches beautifully.
